    Exclamation Semi-Classic Muscle...

    Ok well check it out, I came upon this 72 charger... I havent really done any internal building yet, beyond exchanging stock lifters, rods, and rockerarms... So this beauty is more like a beast right now, shes ugly in other words... I am looking to build her into an elgegant sleeper looking like she is just a for show car on the outside but with the internals to kill any random "slowbra" to be seen on the road... I wanna just run the stock 400 block, with no higher than a 60 over bore. I need some help with what size cam shaft to get some raw low end power (enough to lift up the front end), and im gonna throw a classic blower on top so needs some of that low compression power build. Any help would be great.

    haha well its actually gonna be a high gloss black with either a deep blue/purple RT paint job and/or blacking it all out and only giving it a chevy style classic SS camaro Stripe around the hood lip. But as far as the car goes it will be all blacked out with one other color standing out a little bit in the light. I've seen so many cars in my town with blower ports sitting above the hood but all they are is fancy ram air inductions. So People around here will probably think its the same as the rest lol.
